Ascent Trip Report

Early AM start, encoutered snow at about 12000 ft but very walkable. Snow on N. Face required crampons/ice axe. Traverse on N. face was sketchy since we were the first ones there since the first big snow of the season (scree under 2 ft. of powder)

Patrick and Pete were sketched out by the final 15 ft. of climbing to reach the summit so I soloed it. Sweet summit!
